NYU IT System Redesign
CPACS is NYU’s largest capital management system used across the university. I’m currently conducting researches and working on both the UX and UI redesign. The modules that I’m working on are funding requests, purchase orders, service schedules, and navigation.
Data and info shown on the following screens are made up. The module is currently going through development. Prototypes and more information regarding my work process can be provided upon request.
I’m one of the two UX designers on the team, working with the IT Department Assistant VP, team Lead, engineer manager, product owner, and a team of developers. I work with the other designer to define the design and visual standard such as navigation, component behaviour, colour scheme, and information display to be employed for the whole site.
I’m in charge of the user and system flow for the purchase order and budget submission processes including initiating funding request, submitting forms for approval, and adjustments.
The old system has been around for decades without being modified or updated. We are tasked to redesign both the looks and the UX flow. We first created a general visual design guidelines, then we broke down the system into smaller modules (such as help centre, general project info, budget request etc.). For each module we transfer the existing content and information from the old system to our new visual design, then examine all elements and the flow to streamline the process by creating use cases.
The following are some screenshots of the current system to submit a new budget request.
